I am sunburned and exhausted from my trip down to Suwan today, but here are some pics.

Every Sunday at 2pm they do a traditional dance and cultural event. There was some great tea to be had as well. Look Carrie, it’s like fire dancing and drumming all in one! The streamers are actually attached to their hats and spin around to leave their hands free to play instruments. It was fun to watch.

An old percussive instrument.

A story etched in slate on the side of the building.

From the palace, I looked up the hill and saw what I’ve been looking for. Finally a Buddha!

I think this was a temple on the grounds of a school for young monks and people studying Confucianism.
